If you want to check your skill level or that of a person testing let the attacker use a water soluble marker preferably in red. Go at it for real and then count the cuts on nage when your done.
Used to play with friends that way all the time....both having markers and working on all the good stuff (timing, distance, etc.)
Very revealing (and a hell of a lot of fun too, if you like that sort of thing.)

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
